For 2018, we're doubling down on what has become our crown jewel event!! With registrations growing each year, we've decided that 2018 will have two full weeks of fun for our campers! The first week (2/11-2/18) will be for the "A" group. Our Weekend "A" Camp athletes will arrive in Clermont on Wednesday, February 14th. Camp officially starts that evening with our welcome dinner. Campers will leave the following Sunday, February 18th. This "A" camp will be for athletes with a Half Ironman PR of 5:20 or better. If you're unsure of which group you belong in due to having never raced a 70.3, or any other reason, shoot us a message and we'll let you know!
INFORMATION ON THE WEEKEND CAMP:
In short, you're going to get world class coaching, fully supported training sessions, lots of laughs, clinics, seminars, an end of camp party, fun, camaraderie, swag, maybe a few tears (at the end as you say goodbye, we hope), a few beers, hard work, and new friends. The weekend camp is structured to support more athletes, but that doesn't mean we can take everyone. We need to keep the athlete to coach ratio at a maximum of 5 to 1. So we may have to cap our registration if we start to approach that number.
What is included in the weekend camp?
-Athletes will receive a complimentary safety inspection from our professional bike mechanic. Our mechanic will lube the chain, check your brakes, adjust the shifting, headset, and bars (if needed). In-depth bike mechanical work and parts will be offered at a DEEPLY discounted rate during the camp.
-All bike workouts will be sagged with 1-2 professional mechanics on hand and nutrition will be provided by Infinit Nutrition.
-The weekend camp will include 1 meal in conjunction with the end of camp celebration (beer included). This is where we will give away all of the prizes and awards. In the past, we have given away ENVE Wheelsets, Normatec Recovery Boots, Huub Wetsuits, Stages Powermeters, and A LOT more.
-We will have a massage therapist on hand all weekend and appointments can be booked in 30min increments.
-Cycling will take place on the amazing hills of Clermont; including the legendary Winter Garden Coffee Ride.
-Running will take place on the lakefront trails through Clermont and the on famed "Clay Trails" of Clermont.
-Athletes will swim in the BRAND-NEW outdoor pool at the National Training Center. We will also incorporate a coached open water swim at a measured and buoyed open water swim course.
-Clinics and Seminars will be led by our team of coaches, along with guest experts. Clinics / Seminars given at previous camps have included: Fueling for Race Day, How to Race and Train with (bike) Power, Mental Fitness Techniques, Open Water Swim Technique, Healthy Eating for the Endurance Athletes, How to Improve Transitions, Recovery Techniques, Swim Stroke Analysis and more.
-Product demos from our partners.
New for 2018!!!
-We want to offer video analysis to our weekend campers. Video assessments for the swim, bike and run are already included in the extended camp, but will be an "add on" for the weekend camp. These assessments may be limited to a certain number of athletes depending on how many people are interested.
-One assessment (for the swim, bike, or run) will be an additional $49 (paid after camp). All three assessments will be $99 (paid after camp).

What are you responsible for?
We are going to do a lot of things for you, but you still have a few responsibilities... we're all adults, right? You are responsible for getting to Clermont by February 14th for the Weekend Camp. You are responsible for having swim, bike, and run gear ready for camp before camp begins (bring wetsuits). You are responsible for having a place to sleep during camp, and a way of getting to camp activities. Most importantly, you are responsible for having a GREAT time and gaining some big time skills and fitness!!
-Athletes will be responsible for transportation to Clermont with their training equipment. If flying, the Orlando International Airport is the preferred airport and is approximately a 30-40 minute drive to Clermont.
-We have secured an exclusive rental car discount for this camp through Budget. Our Budget Customer Discount (BCD) code is U020319. If you need assistance with making your rental car reservation, please contact Kayla Hall at (800) 525-7537 ext 32618. This discount is good for reservations taking place between 2/4/18 and 3/4/18. This discount is valid for vehicles rented at Orlando International Airport or the local Clermont Budget location (non-airport locations have fewer taxes and fees).
-We encourage athletes to coordinate and share rental vehicles. At our request, minivans are eligible for this discount and could be very economical and excellent for sharing.

Still not sold!? Feel free to reach out to any of our previous campers or see what they had to say in our post-race survey:
"Getting the chance to meet some awesome people and quality training/information. Learned so much in those few days."
"Part of why I loved the camp was that it was a nice balance of work hard, and then have fun/socialize with the group. The opening dinner was a great start ...and of course the end of camp party was great!"
"As long as the general format and the staff stay in place, I will 100% be back (and if price is about the same) The mix of hard sessions and time to chill out and relax with the team was perfect, and the staff were great."
-If you're one of our coached athletes, this is a no-brainer! This is the perfect opportunity to get in solid training, with YOUR coach, and take that athlete-coach relationship to the next level.
-If you are on TRS Racing or the Baucco squad, this is a great chance to really get to know your teammates!! We have fostered a strong team environment amongst our athletes. This is the perfect chance to suffer, sweat, socialize, and have a blast with all those people.
-This is an impeccable opportunity to jump-start your 2018 training. Get off the trainer, get in the open water, and hit the running trails all while under the watchful eyes of our coaches. Get one step ahead of your competition for the coming season. There is a reason that elite athletes attend training camps.
-Get feedback on your fundamentals in swim, bike, and run. This is the perfect opportunity to start the year with sound mechanics. Get the results of the effort you put in with improved swimming, biking, and running.
-We truly pride ourselves on this camp as the crown jewel of our events. It is the original AJ Baucco Coaching camp and we raise the bar each year on how to deliver the best experience at the best price.
